    if you could play with any drummer you wanted who would it be?

    for a one-off exciting rollercoaster session, Keith Moon... although I can't imagine anything more frustrating than slogging round the world trying to play bass night after night to that avalanch of drums...

    for the long haul... Travis Barker... still with the manic edge of Keith Moon but with better timing & consistency
     
  4. It was always Carlos Vega for me (he unfortunately passed away not too long ago). Now, probably Steve Jordan. Those are guys who play the style of music that I enjoy and who are the very best at it IMO... good solid 'rock/pop/funk'! Omar Hakeem would be right up there also. And of course, just to play on shuffle with Steve Gadd would be a dream come true for most of us!!!
     
  5. Richard Bailey.

    No question about it.:smug: :smug:

    2. Mike Portnoy - Dream Theater
    3. Ringo - not to play necessarily, but just to hang and hear his stories of back in the day...

    Music related stuff belongs in Misc, but no big deal.

    Bran Dailor
    Vinnie Paul
    Mike Bordin
    Carl Palmer
    Buddy Rich

    All would be fun to jam with.
